Thumbs down ParanoidAndroid 4.4.2 Kit Kat

Hello guys,

I've been using the Beta 4.0 for a while now and it works brilliantly, so I saw an update beta 3 I had to download it.

It has some bugs, not much apps like how you get in the beta, gapps not installing and my data is off but it is switched on.

Having a android phone with no gapps and data is useless, it's like having a nokia 3310, just phone text and that's it.

Please fix if possible.

Thanks

I installed PA 4.0 Beta 3 as well (yesterday) and I have none of the bugs you're describing: data (3G/2G) works, and Gapps not installing, that depends ENTIRELY on which Gapps you are using. I'm using the latest PA Gapps complete package (23/01/2014) and they just installed for me. So both of the bugs that you're experiencing are only on your end. Are you absolutely sure you set the Data icon correctly, because since Beta 3 PA uses a new Quicksettings systems. See in your systems if it's really working. Also check if your APN is still correct. Download and install the latest version of PA Gapps. If that still doesn't work, you should do a clean install (even though I didn't, I'm coming from CM11 Beta 3, just flashed the latest Gapps and PA 4.0 Beta 3 and everything was good to go).

To be honest you're being rude here and you obviously only tried installing everything once. Well this is a custom ROM scene and you need to do an effort yourself. What I see now is that you're using a "thumbs-down"-icon which is extremely discouraging, comparing this phone to an old dumb phone is also completely out of line because WiFi still works, and there are a ton of other things you could still do even without Gapps and data. This post just smells of you having a sense of entitlement, but don't forget that we're not paying deedwar. If a dev decides not to release a ROM that's very sad and it's all due to threads like these.

So what I'd like you to do now is rephrase your OP, use a positive icon and maybe we can turn this wasted thread into a discussion thread for PA Nozomi instead of a shouting contest.

That is very well said redstarr1 but i dont quite feel as strongly about it as you. I just see it as a logical statement. However it would help if you can expand on your issues somewhat. Did you do a clean install (wipe data / system / cache / dalvik) or just a dirty flash over the top. What network do you connect too and have you tried Changing your carrier in "access point names". Creating a whole thread for an issue but not elaborating on what you have and havent tried really makes it hard to help.

Due to time constraints I will NOT answer PM's unless it is a development question from another ROM developer. You need to post in the appropriate forum with the required issue and either myself or another user will answer if they can.

Default Beta 5

Hi guys,

The latest update beta 5 works just fine but a few bugs.

Sometimes the back button doesn't work, have to restart the phone for it to start working again.

When charging the wireless is activated, and the battery takes longer to charge.

The phone lags now and then but other than that works fine.

If anyone who can post this on the Xperia S development thread I would really appreciate it, I don't have rights to post on the development thread as yet.

Thanks

Talking Beta 6

Hi guys,

The new update of Beta 6 for Paranoid is brilliant.

After the 1st boot the phone is a little slow but after the rom has settled it's very smooth.

So far all I have tested works perfectly, don't like the launcher much though, so I have my own custom launcher, Next launcher works brilliantly and very customizable. The new launcher's that are added aren't very good and would like if they could get the original launcher if possible.

Other than that all is well.

Thanks Paranoidanroid.
